I have an enhacement that I wrote for myself.
Now, with replace.py r8700, using -xml and -save, we can collect the
articles to work on in automatic mode. But sometimes it takes a lot of time,
and we would like to know, whether it will end in the near future or needs
more time. For example, I have to leave home, and I want to know if the task
will end in 15 minutes or I have to quit it.
The xml dump contains articles mainly in the order of their creation, so
knowing the date of the first edit if the article on the screen is useful.
It may cause a very few decreasing of speed. My replace.py writes this date
on the screen after every 20th title if in automatic mode (but perhaps it
could also be each title).
The question is: is it worth to build into the framework for public use, or
is it only in my interest? Shall I put it on SF or forget?
